    No, Delray LM is cool. They installed it so they have to warranty the work as well, but they didn't say it would void my extended warranty. I have had nothing but great experiences from them.
    I met the tech and he told me it took him about 1.5 hours to put it. He said it was a PITA. He dropped the IRS to do it. He had to b/c there is barely any room to work. Anyways, they did a great job and it looks good.
    The Tech also said that the brace looked indestructable and something else in the rear would break before the diff cover. That is what I like to hear. :thumbsup:

    Yeah, that's an investment I will definitely be making ASAP. From your talk with the tech this sounds like something alittle beyond my skills( dropping the irs and all). How much do you think it will cost to have someone install it *properly*? Man, it must feel good to know you can drop the hammer without any worries :) .

    Just ordered mine. The car is at the dealership getting the diff re-sealed for the 2nd time. The brace is going on as soon as I get the car back.

    How hard is this install? Could a non-mechanic (like myself) do it by just following the instructions or should I just have a mechanic do it to be on the safe side? What are some things that might go wrong if I tried to do this myself?

    The tech said he had to drop the IRS to do it properly. He said a driveway install would be difficult. If you had access to a lift, it would be much easier. I say just let a place do it and this way the work is guaranteed.

    Thats BS. I hope he didn't charge you for that.

    Not true at all. As long as you don't mind work.

    Not really a lot, more like a little easier

    thats another way to do it :rockon:

    Guess that sums that up.
    Luckily I didn't have to pay for any of it. They replaced my cover under warranty and threw the brace on for free. So I made out, but it is good to know in case so others don't get taken advantage of.

    I am somewhat mechanically enclined, but it looked a bit difficult in the driveway. I am slightly intimidated by the IRS and don't want to be stuck messing up my cobra. I am sure there are alot of other owners on this board in the same mindset. I have had 5 other GT's that I worked on with no problems.
    I am also a visual learner, so I like to see how something is done; then I can do it. Maybe a step by step post with pics for us slow learners. :beer:

    Hope you don't hate my post Doug, I endorse the product 100%. I just can only comment on my own experience and intimidation for the install. :thumbsup:

    Well we would have had a Vid of us shooting the brace... but someone had to empty a mag into it before I could even get my damn gun loaded :nono:

    Common decency would dictate that the person that brought the item to be shot would have first crack at it :dw:

    OH, he goes by postban on here, a nice heaping of scorn would be in order! :nonono:

    I'll get the pic's posted Monday
